HUGE Article in Outside Magazine

Today, I’m a very happy panda.

Ever since I took my first few turns on a ski hill, I dreamed of getting into Outside Magazine. While I’ve been incredibly happy and grateful for all of the press that has been sent my way in the past few years, Outside was always my own sort of “holy grail” for publicity. I would’ve been happy with a little blurb in a page margin – so to be the feature of a 2800 profile has thrown me onto my proverbial heels a bit.

I’d love to post the whole article online, but I’m sure that’d get me in hot water with the Outside powers-that-be. However, if you’re keen to pick up a physical copy – here’s the cover that you’ll be looking for (it’s the November issue) –

A few high points:

1.) I get a nickname that I truly hope sticks (The Cyborg)

2.) The title for the next photo project is revealed (Low Lifes)

3.) The article discusses the Cheetah Legs – excuse me, Connollegs – at length.

4.) I get quoted as saying (for better or worse): “Now’s a pretty rad time not to have legs.”

    I regularly get Outside and just read the article about you (I'd never heard of you before). That prompted me to go to my computer and check out your photos. Wow. Next I plan to head out to buy a copy of your book. Thanks for being such an amazing role model. I'm looking forward to reading more about your life and travels. Love your great sense of humor too.

    Thanks, Alana! Hope you enjoy the book! If you are by some chance, massively disappointed in my writing, you know where to find me…

    Just read the article in Outside and then Googled you. To quote the article, “You da man!”

    Hey Kevin!

    I was just in the doctor's office and picked up this issue of Outside by happenstance, and I flipped right to your story. It was awesome! When I got back to the office, I went to Outside's website so I could link to your article, but got nothing. Looks like it's only available in print?

    I work closely with several disability advocacy groups here in Phoenix, and one of them is mid-construction on a sports and fitness center that's 100 percent accessible. On the Facebook page for the center, we like to feature athletes that happen to have disabilities, and I'd say your accomplishments are worth noting (to say the least) and definitely enviable for people both with and without disabilities.

    Any chance you have editorial pull in what gets published online? :o)

    Way to go, man!

    The Outside article is terrific… it led me to your book, which I devoured all in one day — couldn't put it down! The book led me to your website, which led me to your blog. I feel like a Cyborg-groupie! Hope to see you on the slopes one of these days. You da Cyborg!

    Hi Beth! Thanks for the message and compliments! Sorry, but unfortunately I don't have any pull with Outside in terms of publishing their bigger stories online. I'd be happy to do a comment on your facebook page. Awesome to hear about the fitness center! I'd love to check it out someday!

    best

    Kevin, er Cyborg, great article. Led me to “Google Stalk” you where I discovered an NPR piece about your Rolling Exhibition. Great stuff. You are one impressive young man. Keep on rockin'
